We are heading out to Beaver Creek in March - two families of 4. We were thinking about putting the 4 adults in a private half day class and the 4 kids in a private half day class. My question, specially towards my family of 2 kids that have never skied (6 and 9) and my wife and I that haven't ski'd in 20+ years. Will a half day lesson be enough to get us to get down the green's ok for the rest of the trip?
We're only going for 5 days. First day is shot, of course, so that really leaves just 4 days which isn't much time. We plan on being on the slopes for 2 of those days and maybe a 3rd day at the end if we feel up to it.
So is a half day of private lessons sufficient for beginners?
We also have the option (at least the adults - the kids aren't heavy enough) to get a lesson before we go on a machine such as this:
thanks in advance!
